27 July 2019 NZ Herald: Kids doing it tough in winter

“A two-year-old born prematurely with a chronic lung condition has been hospitalised multiple times this year.
Part of the problem is that the child is sleeping on a damp mattress…”
Replacing the mattress is great but the new one will get damp as well due to the poor design of our homes. It is not the occupants fault. Yes there is some things that they might be able to do but without affordable (so it is actually done) heating and ventilation these homes will stay damp.
“A family of six living in a small three-bedroom house recently had to dispose of all their bedding and lounge furniture due to mould “
“A family of four with two children under two all sleep together, they have one small heater that does not keep them warm – both children have been admitted to hospital with bronchiolitis”
